A Florida Man Carried Out a Suicide Bombing in Syria This Week

Categories: News

U.S. officials have confirmed that the still-unnamed man grew up in Florida; images at right show the truck bomb he blew up in a suicide attack.
On May 25, a massive truck bomb driven by a suicide bomber blew through a Syrian neighborhood, the latest strike in the nation's brutal civil war. This bomb was different though; the Islamist force claiming credit quickly posted video of the attack and claimed that the jihadi who carried it out was an American.

Last night, government forces confirmed that a U.S. citizen had in fact been the suicide bomber and added another detail: He grew up in Florida and went to school in the Sunshine State. Another official tells the Washington Post he was more specifically from South Florida.

That's as much information as government sources were willing to confirm to CNN and ABC last night, but the jihadis behind the attack posted several photos of the man before his suicide bombing.

The rebel al-Nusra Front, an Al Qaeda linked group in Syrian, identified the man by a nom de guerre: Abu Hurayra Al-Amriki. (Al-Amriki means "the American" in Arabic), and posted a Youtube video that showed bombs being loaded into an armored truck and then a massive explosion in a nearby village.

Another fighter linked to al-Nusra posted the now infamous photo of the bomber holding a cat with the message: "Abu Hurayra Al-Amriki performed a martyrdom operation in Idlib, Jabal Al-Arba'een. May Allah accept him."

Wait so, homicidal crazies with nothing to offer society are leaving America in droves to blow themselves up?  And we want to stop this why, exactly?  Sounds like a hell of a programme.
